Waterfall and Rainforest Hike
Departing from Kahului, you'll drive to the trail head, approximately 30 minutes away. Upon arrival, you'll hike through a lush valley along Maui's famous road to Hana. During the hike, you'll enjoy the view of several scenic waterfalls up to 40 feet high! Feel free to stop and swim in several large pools underneath the waterfalls. You can even leap from waterfall ledges into the pools below!
Your guide will make this 2.5 mile hike come alive with their extensive knowledge of the local animal and plant species, and with their love of life in Hawaii. The elevation change is only around 200 feet, so the hike is not very strenuous. The hike will require some boulder scrambling for short distances in streams, so participants should be comfortable with crossing streams on their hike. You will be provided with a backpack with mosquito repellent, bottled water, ponchos, lunch, and snacks. You won't want to miss this memorable Hawaiian waterfall hike!

Our guide Mirco was just outstanding. picking fruit and flowers off of trees. Native plants and flowers abound. The hike in the rain forest is muddy and slick in streams and trails. Not the easiest hike but I am 65 but well worth the effort. Be sure to dress appropriately. Highly recommend!

The hike was great. I loved the waterfall and being outdoors. I think it's difficulty should have been rated higher so individuals would be prepared. There was a lot of mud and cliff climbing that was not mentioned. My son and I did enjoy the challenge.

We had a wonderful hike with Gail! She is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. It was raining quite hard during part of our hike, but she kept a great attitude and kept us moving along, with safety as her number one priority. The stop at the waterfall is wonderful, lunch was delicious and jumping off into the water was definitely a highlight for our group. Book this tour-- you will love it. And pay the $2 for the "water shoes" or be sure to bring your own (like Keene's). There were other tour companies out there that didn't seem to have the same access or safety concerns.

This was an excellent excursion. Glori was our guide and she is extremely knowledgeable. She explained a lot about the various plants and trees you'll encounter in the rain forest, allowed us to sample fresh papaya, pineapple, guava, passion fruit, even raw coffee beans! I most enjoyed climbing the rocks and plunging into the waterfalls. That part is optional :-) Just know it's a lot of walking, could be lots of mud too. Wear old sneakers, but definitely do this excursion!

Great guide and we really enjoyed the trip. This was one of our best excursions in Hawaii! While we were very happy with the excursion I do believe that it would be helpful to better describe the hiking conditions including the amount of water and mud that you must go through in order to complete the trip. Also, the water shoes that we rented for two dollars were well worth it! Food and snacks provided were fine and we really appreciated the company providing back packs for us due to the mud and water conditions. We would definitely do this trip again and recommend it to others.
